Extensive educational experience!

Kevin Kent, Maximum Impact Media, Inc. Executive Director,

was a NYCDOE High and Junior High School educator, Yeshiva General studies teacher, operated a commercial live and studio media company, and taught multimedia at a business college. He has trained local residents, youth, educators, and staff from local non profits to become creators of digital content. As a teacher, webmaster, and NYCDOE Computer progammer and specialist,. and commercial media provider for 30 years, and college instructor for several, he developed educational curriculum on media and technology literacy and video/audio/web production for his differentiated instruction. Upon his retirement, he was inspired and passionate to provide the same success with his knowledge, experience, and equipment. A school of 5000 students, John F. Kennedy voted him "Teacher of the Year" where he had an 86% passing rate of the NYS Science Regents.

There has to be a better way.

So many students can achieve given the environment and opportunity where they can do so. Because there are some students who fail in the traditional classroom or school, not because they are incapable but because the institution doesn't fit their learning style. As well, there are many clients who need media services, which are not affordable to them. Or the scheduling does not fit the student or the client. These were the seed concepts germinating into this organization: to provide an alternative and affordable education and service organization. Maximum Impact Media, Inc., a 501(c)(3) was born.

We seek to provide classes, workshops, and on-site media services at free or low cost to qualified recipients.

We seek to offer after school and in-school digital media programs in local schools. Additionally, we seek to offer professional development courses for educators. Kevin Kent built a world-class studio and seeks to build a local facility with students. He has designed designs media literacy and video production curriculum. We seek to provide experienced program guidance to schools for middle school and high school students besides providing our own workshops and classes whether individual, small groups, mentored, or home-schooling.

“My child finally was excited by class, which he avoided. He was used to failing though he was above average in intelligence and ability. Copying from Powerpoint and doing worksheets were every day part of class: nothing to look forward to. However, when Mr. Kent provided making video as part of science class, he would tell me about what he did when he came home. His class was a place where he felt that he could excel and be recognized for his achievements. It was very exciting for us all to see his movie, let alone see him graduate with honors. He is now in college for videography.” - John Clark, Parent

"I am all about music. I think, breathe, and live for making music. What a waste to have to sit in class when I could be doing what I want. Finally, there's a place where I can learn about making music, in the studio, and on my guitar." -DeQuan, student

"Not all students fit into our school. Unfortunately, we have to turn them away to meet our standards. It is sad, because they have no place to go even if they are good kids and want to learn." - Rabbi Weisowitz, Principal

"I always wanted to make a YouTube music performance video. I didn't know how. I finally got my song on YouTube and was very excited to show it to all my friends who know much I think about music.. Thank you, Mr. Kent" - Noach the Rapper

"I always wanted to learn how to use a camera. Other classes were way too expensive and during my work time. Maximum Impact Media worked out a mentoring schedule so I could still work, and it was reasonably priced." - Mr. Price, student
